Another Feather

2015 March 6


Just popping in to share another project created based Tam’s lesson from Life Book 2015, only this time on canvas:


Used some of my ephemera, some paper scraps and of course ink sprays.  I was really nervous about creating the feather but after finishing it, I have to say it looks pretty good.



I used a receipt from my trip to Germany in December as part of the collage papers which you can see peeking out.


And of course, lots of book pages.


I so loved this lesson and have to say that I would have never thought I could draw/sketch a feather had anyone asked me.  I will say that trying to re-create a project on canvas is a little more intimidating and no matter how hard one tries, it never turns out exactly the same.

Here is my first feather project on paper.  This one has my affirmations since it’s going to be part of my “Life Book” book.  On the canvas, I decided to leave the affirmations off.



Hm, looking at both side by side, I have to say I think I like the feather on the canvas better.  Don’t know what I was so apprehensive about!  Smile

Hope you guys have a wonderful weekend!  And a special thank you to everyone that comes and visits this blog.  I truly appreciate it and hope that you find inspiration!

    Hey Micki,  Just touching base with you and letting you know I still keep up with your blog.  Your art skills are growing by leaps and bounds!  Especially love all of the 'people' art you are creating.  Hope you are doing well and staying warm this winter.  Take care,

    AMAZING!  Your feather is stunning.  Grandpa is deeply seated in your creative soul, Micki.  I haven't seen anything here that isn't artfully executed.  Happy Weekend!
